It’s December, and it’s cold! The weather channel said that right now, it is 35 degrees colder than this time yesterday. Perfect time to be sick, right? (No, not really.) I shouldn’t complain–when you work with little ones, you learn that you can’t have the snuggles without the sniffles. At least I have these two joys to make me feel better…
Last week I was very productive–I had the whole week off, and I made the most of it. Christmas shopping is finished, several gifts are wrapped, and I finished the presents for my favorite three little boys. They are 6, 4, and 2, and all boy. They love dirt, bugs, Star Wars, and Ninja Turtles. I found Ninja Turtle shirts earlier this year, so obviously they need matching hats.
I didn’t have a pattern, but I improvised with this basic pattern from Repeat Crafter Me. I used Crafter’s Secret lime green until I had five rows left. I switched to the contrast color for 3 rows and then back to green for the final two. For the tie, I chained 31, and did three rows of double crochet. I sewed the middle into the back of the stripe and then tied it. Finally, I made the eyes, and done!
I know there are 4 turtles, but I didn’t have any bright blue yarn, so that one was out.
